'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> let's bring in our senior congressional correspondent dana bash. dana, senators mccain and graham are now firing back at what we just heard the president say. >> that's right. in fact, senator mccain did so on the senate floor. he was going to the senate floor already, wolf, to formally introduce a resolution for a special or select committee for congress to investigate all of the unanswered questions relating to the attack in libya. but he made a point while he was on the floor, again continuing in a very angry tone as we've seen from all of these men to respond to that comment from the president. >> he said not to "pick on his ambassador to the united states to "pick on him." that statement is really remarkable in that if the president thinks that we are picking on people, he really does not have any idea of how serious this issue is. i'm

in predicted holiday sales. un, only a small portion of that, maybe 20%, but much more likely somewhere around 10% will be online sales. i think some of that is really organic and new, but we don't yet have the numbers for this holiday season. you know, several people have commented today, we don't even know if this kind of momentume which is very real, very significant for this five-day holiday spree, much more than even the boom optimists predicted -- whether that will continue into the long holiday season is still ahead. >> brown: neil what, do you look at, the question of online shopping? is it its own thing? does it add to the whole? what's the impact in the larger picture? >> people are going to spend based on their incomes and jobs and paychecks. ultimately, whether that spending happens online at amazon or in a store, you know, it matters for the retail sector. it matters for all kinds of workers in that sector. but in terms of the overall economy what matters is how much people are spending. one man's spending is another man's income and getting to a place where more people have jobs,
the assembly on behalf of latin america and caribbean states, the chilean envoy said overwhelmingly u.n. opposition to the embargo reflects the consensus of virtually the entire world. >> we emphasize the consistency between the application of the unilateral measures which has no backing international law and the spirit of principles and purposes of the charter of the united nations. we urge the u.s. to make the necessary adjustments in this regard, allowing this legislation with the charter of the united nations, the resolutions of the united nations, and the views of countries of latin america and the caribbean in general of all the regions of the world. >> the united nations is warning that haiti's upcoming march harvest may already have been destroyed by the flooding of hurricane sandy. it left haiti overrun with devastating floods, causing widespread damage and adding thousands of people to the massive numbers already displaced by previous floods and the devastating earthquake of january 2010. on tuesday, the u.n. relief official said in addition to potentially destroying march's h
leaders and un stamp, it will be unveiled tomorrow, but the question, can it continue to keep china's people excluded from power. there is no sign the party is willing to engage with those who want real change like nine of's nobel peace prize winner. good he remains in this jail, serving 11 years for calling for western-style separation of power. >> people want democracy and freedom. in the constitution, it says people have the right to freedom of speech, freedom of publication, and freedom of a lot of things common -- a lot of things, yet it is hard. >> they caught the imagination of many. it ended when the communist party conceded, giving a free vote to choose new officials. now the party is considering reform. looking beyond china, they have commissioned a report to singapore. it has become wealthy but kept a system where one party dominates the rec and parks the danger of not having political reform in the next five years -- where one party dominates. >> the danger of not having political reform, the chinese party would collapse if they do not do anything. >> doing something may
a second term we might be able to get that done because we have a lot of long-term un unemployed. i hope some of the tax breaks, such as the breaks on social security payroll taxes can be continued onward from december. i think that's very important to keep money in the hands of the middle class and enabling their spending, and jobs. >> eliot: all the miles you're talking b all of which i'm fully in accord with all predicated with president obama to guide the path. i agree, if he gets the second term. one of the premise that i view and i think you view as one of the misguided policies of mitt romney if you lower the tax breaks you get an outbreak of investment. there was a survey that disputed that. they polled it under political pressure. what is your wisdom as someone who has studied this in great death, would this bring investment as mitt romney high hypothesizes. >> no, between cutting marginal tax rates on the top and creating more jobs or economic growth. clinton increased taxes and we had jobs than when bush cut taxes. yet average economic growth during the years was better than

an issue in the united states. it is an issue also in europe, being encouraged by the un and the meetings in rio over the summer but europe is also finding that green jobs are not all they thought they would be. spain just opted subsidies for solar power and if solar power doesn't work in sunny spain it won't work anywhere. germany has also stopped it subsidies for solar power which is more understandable because there are a lot of clouds in germany. even though the economy isn't cloudy at all. the un has had a strong influence on this. >> chuck bradford. you are cannot hold enough to remember but jimmy carter gave lots of money, billions of dollars to alternate energy projects. >> i do remember. i had to waiting gas lines in the 1970s. >> to any of those plants still exist? i don't think they lasted more than a couple years. secondly are you familiar with another jimmy carter program when he gave money to build five different steel mills four of which went bankrupt almost immediately and the fifth one put out of business the plant in kansas city they blame on things? >> jimmy carter's pr

important element, the u.n. dimension: respect for the territorial integrity and independence of iraq. so that meant that the action team could not go to nondeclared facilities. only delareed facilities could be -- declared facilities could be inspected. but then the security council formed out that right to, i would say, break the integrity to the -- [inaudible] so they were charged with nondeclared facilities and activities. of course, then it was, obviously, chemical, biological. but the beauty of these wars that it's tough sanctions system was in place. we have to have that also. but immediately when the inspection started, the sanction system was gradually released. so this was a functioning system, good behavior led also to these single sanctions. bad behavior, which happened, of course, quite frequently, some blockages and refusals, was met by some tough language from the security council. not from the israeli government or anyone, it was security council under the charter of the united nations that put that pressure. so, of course, we know that this system works extremely well. it
